A dialogue between choreography and visual arts.

Visual artist Jeremy Millar and choreographer Siobhan Davies collaborate on an ambitious new installation showing in 2017 featuring the work of 13 choreographers, visual artists, scientists and designers exploring how the body feels when in the act of doing.  At the invitation of DANSOX (Dance Scholarship Oxford) in this talk they will discuss the different strategies of collaborating across artforms.  Taking inspiration from Aby Warburg’s Mnemosyne Atlas they explore how side-by-side presence can inform their artistic practice and create a new present. The event will include performative moments with collaborator Helka Kaski.

Date:  Wednesday 19th October 17.30-19.30pm

Venue: Jacqueline Du Pré Music Building, St Hilda’s College, Cowley Place, Oxford OX4 1DY
